  • "There were six people in our party. When we arrived to the farmhouse we were put into a room with a large party that had a lot of children. It was loud and the children were screaming. We were going to ask to be moved to another table that was more quiet but the large group left. The server was friendly and nice but he took a while to bring some drinks to the table. From being there before there were complimentary kettle chips and we did not receive those. All members of the party thoroughly enjoyed their meals. No complaints about the food but the service could have been better."

  • "This was the first time to your restaurant and my husband and I enjoyed our lunch experience. The only fault was that my husband's full rack of ribs were very dry and hard to eat. The server's were all very pleasant and attentive to our needs."

  • "After a long day of snowmobiling, it was just what we needed some good old comfort food. We had the pulled pork sandwich, and it was probably the most tender and tasty pulled pork I've ever had. Highly recommend to anyone that likes good food."

  • "Great food, overall a great experience ! Friendly service and fresh food. Meals were plentiful!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food was average & over priced for the quality of the food served to all four in our party. Price would not be a concern if one could say wow" that was an excellent meal. The steak served was just warm & somewhat dry even for medium rare. On the other hand, the oysters were exceptional together with the dessert. The atmosphere was ok but once again we were expecting somewhat of a white table cloth atmosphere based on menu prices. The wine was very good but an extended wine list would be more attractive."

  • "Enjoyed lunch with a friend. Everything we had was great. Our server was very attentive."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We didn't like the table that we were given as we could not fit on the benches and be comfortable. There was no space between the benches and the table. We decided to go to the bar and have a drink and ask for a new table. That was the lemons part. We ended up liking the ambience of the bar, the bartender was charming and very knowledgeable and was able to walk the line between being friendly and giving us our space. The food was perfect. Steaks were cooked to perfection, the portions were bang on. The kitchen staff even cooked 1 oyster Rockefeller for me so I could say I had tried it. I cannot remember the last time I had such a nice dinning experience. Lemonade!"

  • "I was pleasantly surprised with The Farmhouse, the restaurant has a house-like feeling and beautiful interior decorations. My waiter was very proffestional and friendly. The seat were comfortable and it was very relaxing, the mood was just right. The food came quite quickly, and the presentation of our meals were unique and lovely. I enjoyed how the salad came in a jar and the fries came in a small stainless steal basket. I had a taste of my boyfriend's lamb and my friend's avocado chicken burger with garlic mayo, both fantastic. I also really liked my cheddar bacon burger, I left wanting more! The meal pricing is perfect, and I really liked the yummy fruit candies they give with the bill :) Overall it was an amazing experience."

  • "This was my first time here and I brought 3 clients for lunch...everyone loved it! The food did take a little while to arrive, but heck it's made FRESH on site daily from wholesome local ingredients! I love that you get 2 sides with each entree...I had the daily salad and the fries, but there are so many selections. The desserts were also very amazing...highly recommend the gluten-free (flourless) chocolate torte. Wine list is not extensive, but it appears they have a decent selection. Loved the ambience too and the old farm house feel!"

  • "The farm house is mine and my wife's favourite restaurant in town. We will go there for a romantic dinner and also take family and friends. We love the food, which is never disappointing, and also the ambiance of the building itself. Staff are always courteous and helpful. The only thing I would Change perhaps are the giant canvases of farm animals and scenes. They don't really match and weren't there when it first opened; although they won't stop us from going to this great restaurant."

  • "Steak and lettuce wraps were great. The brick chicken was good too. Would return with my parents or for a work function."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "I had heard some good things about the Farmhouse and was really looking forward to enjoying it. I was first frustrated with the lack of parking. The table we were given was so dark that we needed to use the lights from our cell phones to read the menu. It was quite noisy and hard for myself and friends to carry a conversation. Some of us had to put on our coats due to the draft coming from the door leading to the patio. The food was just okay....certainly not to the calibre we were expecting for the dollar paid. We were all in agreement that we would try somewhere else next time rather than return."

  • "Good food. their cut of roast (8-10 oz..enough to take home for another meal) with 2 sides and dessert for $19.50...good value Had veggies as a side. gave the parsnips away as I hate them. Had Mac and cheese and it was quite good. My dessert was lemon tart in a jar....very good and light all the noisy screaming kids ruined conversation. still way too cold in there.will not return in the winter. previous restaurants were not cold at all so excuse of an old building doesn't wash. Turn up the heat.. don't be so cheap. Put the heat on before dinner time so the place warms up and have fireplaces on before .I keep my house at 17 C in the day time and 15C at night so I am not a hot house plant but was quite cold and I had a heavy sweater on!!!"

  • "First visit for myself, with the wife being once before, and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. We started with mussels and the broth was a lovely balance with my only complaint being our server cleared our bowl with two mussels left in the bowl...we had a chuckle. My main was the bacon glazed Pork chop which was slightly overdone but very delicious, I should have specified that I like my pork medium. Mac and cheese and veg medley were executed beautifully. My wife had the rib steak and their version of Caesar salad which was perfectly Cooked and salad delicious. Staff were attentive and made for an enjoyable experience. Thanks to Ryan, gardiner, and Jaime for a wonderful night...and our server sorry my dear forgot your name:("

  • "Great meal, attentive but unobtrusive waiter, great view. Family of four, pork tenderloin, ribs, kid's steak, local trout, Rapini, salad, fries, baked potatoe, white wine, and beer. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and we'd happily go back again. Price was great for the food we had!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I've eaten here twice with my husband and each time I had to return my sides to have them reheated. I had ordered the French onion soup and it was also a bit cold as well. French onion soup should be more of a ample amount if your going to charge 8$ for it."

  • "Had a wonderful Valentines day dinner. Did not feel rushed at all and the presentation of food was creative, to say the least, loved the salad in Mason jars."

  • "We were lucky enough to experience the Restaurant during Barrieliciuos. From the moment we entered to building the staff we're awesome.we were seated upstairs and the service for the remainder of our dinner was amazing. The food was exceptional along with the atmosphere. We will be dining here again."

  • "We had a family dinner out at, what is now for our family, the best restaurant in Barrie!!!!! The Farmhouse Restaurant was the perfect mix of comfort, class, freshness, and taste. The décor and staff made it feel as comfortable as home, while the food made our taste buds explode! We took our two kids with us, who are 6 and 8, and the staff treated them wonderfully, even having them pin up their art work on their fridge! The food was to die for! I can't say that I've ever had a better meal. As a young family, we can't usually take the kids to places where the food is fresh, elegant but casual, unique combinations, and pleases all palates. Both of our children begged us to promise to go back again! We most certainly will return again!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I am fussy about my food and how it's prepared. I'll say that if you order anything on the menu you will be amazed on how well the food is prepared. Especially the ribs, lamb or the roast beef. So tender and flavorful that you'll never want to foamy where else."

  • "Food was good. Service was good. Small things like the waiter not returning to refill my water glass and to ask if we would like a second glass of wine would have been a nice touch. The food was tasty and it was served hot. We like most people still tip the staff even if the service is not great but it may not be as much. Just a thought."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Went for Barrielicious for dinner. Probably the best value for your money. A 3 course meal for $25. French onion soup was very good. We sat at a front booth. Table is a little longer than the seats so a bit tight for 2 people. Also the herb garden fridge is right in the front lobby so we had the "glow" of fluorescent lights to add to the ambiance... Will have to try the weekend breakfast once the weather is nicer."

  • "The service was excellent other then the server forgot to give us cutlery when the salad came and we had to stare at the salad for 10 minutes until we were able to wave down a server for cutlery. The food was excellent as well, but with a different partner.....I will be back!"
